The Nightmare Before Christmas - Review

Based on a poem from the murky depths of Tim “Beetlejuice” Burton’s imagination, this animated tale has two beloved holidays colliding with delirious, demented results.

Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloweentown, is bored – “I grow so weary of the sound of screams”. When he accidentally stumbles upon Christmastown, he is utterly spellbound by its joy and colour, and plots to take over the job of “Sandy Claws” for that year…

Seething with razor-sharp one-liners, eye-catching character designs and movie references ranging from Murnau’s Nosferatu to Burton’s own Batman, this is gruesome fun for kids and adults alike.
